«Breast and Thyroid Elastography»


Доктор Ричард Барр
(Richard G. Barr MD)

AIM: To show the practical usage of elastography for evaluating and studying the thyroid gland and breast, and also to show the clinical criteria for diagnosing cancer.

TARGET AUDIENCE: sonographers, general practitioners, endocrinologists, mammologists, surgeons, oncologists.


1. Discuss the principles of strain and shear-wave elastography, including the latest innovations in the field of elastography.
2. Examine the how and why of performing the most informative methods of elastography
3. Discuss the use of breast elastography according to the latest US standards.
4. Discuss thyroid elastography, including the presentation of unique clinical cases.
5. Conclusions and recommendations from one of the most experienced radiology professor and director of an advanced imaging center

Breast elastography is a new sonographic imaging tool which provides additional information on breast lesions in addition to conventional ultrasonography (US) and mammography.
Thyroid elastography is a technique that provides a noninvasive evaluation of lesion stiffness by measuring the thickness of tissues.
Today, two techniques are available for clinical use: strain elastography and shear wave elastography. The latter technique is considered the method of choice for noninvasive imaging of malignant tumors.

Тема эластографии интересна и перспективна. Я опоздала на первые 8 минут вебинара и переживала, что могут возникнуть проблемы с подключением. К счастью, мои опесения не оправдались. Всё организовано чётко и грамотно. Жду следующих интересных вебинаров!
Хотелось бы, конечно все таки больше уделять внимание вопросам. А так все хорошо, спасибо.
